False advertising? [?]

The pic didn't work, so let's try this again..... False advertising?

Looks like it's going to thunderstorm, so I'm off to take a run and hope I get stuck in the rain. Good times!

Totally legit is overrated. Still running a pirated XP to stick it to the man.

I've played with 7 a little (more than with Vista believe it or not), but I need XP to test my sites w/ IE6 & 7.

Tue Jun 02 20:39:50 +0000 2009

Replying to @cameronshearhod

Not exactly what I need from what I've read, and it doesn't do IE6.

Congrats man! Glad things are going well for you outside the cube.

Wed Jun 03 02:15:51 +0000 2009

What a waste today has been. Now I need to decide whether to just continue to kill time or actually get motivated and get productive.

Wed Jun 03 21:57:31 +0000 2009

Replying to @cameronshearhod

Run, yes, but I'll be with Hill and running much slower than the group. Dinner, no, trying to save cash/lose weight.

Wed Jun 03 22:03:33 +0000 2009

Engadget says I'll save a lot of money if I buy the Pre, but will it be worth it to give up my precious iPhone?

Thu Jun 04 02:48:49 +0000 2009

Replying to @thatsiebguy

Believe me, I'm waiting for WWDC and what Apple has in store before doing anything. I love my iPhone but the Pre looks nice....

Replying to @thatsiebguy

I know but it's so pretty! Plus it should be on Verizon in 6 months, which I very much prefer to AT&T.

Hopefully today will be better than yesterday.

I hat Silverlight cause it's, ya know, Microsoft... but man it's a lot better at video than Flash is.

Thu Jun 04 18:27:04 +0000 2009

Netflix has decided that my taste in movies includes "Violent Canadian Movies". I suppose that's true.

Thu Jun 04 18:28:33 +0000 2009

Got my oil changed and they put on a sticker for my next change in 2,000 miles! Yeah, right. See ya in 5,000 or so.

You going 13" or 15"? Shoot me an email with the Whaddya stuff man, I'd like to get rolling on that before the wedding.

Tue Jun 09 04:12:44 +0000 2009

Just launched today. It feels good to finish off projects.

Tue Jun 09 15:54:09 +0000 2009

Today I preordered my iPhone 3GS and a new Gelaskin to protect it after I pick it up on release day. I am such a fanboy nerd.

Wed Jun 10 02:19:56 +0000 2009

Replying to @thatsiebguy

Yeah, I didn't even bother checking the Pre. What's the point? Pre can't touch the iPhone 3GS.

Wed Jun 10 02:54:20 +0000 2009

I thought there wouldn't be anything good to watch at 1 AM, but thank god for Worlds Wildest Moments Caught on Tape 3.

I already set up a filter. I was amazed to come back from a short errand with 20-some emails filling the inbox. Yikes.

Wed Jun 10 20:09:53 +0000 2009

I have a phone call with a client scheduled for 10am. My first thought was "why so early?". Is it okay to consider 10am crazy early?

Thu Jun 11 02:40:53 +0000 2009

It's payback time for all the horror movies I make Hillary watch. Tonight, Bride Wars. I can't wait...

Fri Jun 12 01:51:17 +0000 2009

I need to stop drinking so much soda. The frequent trips to the toilet really kill my productivity.

Fri Jun 12 20:15:45 +0000 2009

Oh yeah, and just 1 more week until my iPhone 3G S. Look out, YouTube, for a huge amount of pointless videos of my dogs and nephews.

Diet soda man! I got hooked on it when I lost a bunch of weight (almost 90 pounds) and now the sugared stuff tastes weird.

I'm gonna have to come to terms with the fact that my fiancee has bad taste in movies. This from the guy whose favorite movie is Evil Dead.

Got Now I'm thinking I should have gone for /wasson. Oops.

Garage-sale-ing. Come buy my used and wothless shit! I've got a wedding/honeymoon to pay for.

Sat Jun 13 11:59:42 +0000 2009

1 hour into the sale and no visitors. I'd much rather be asleep.

Sat Jun 13 12:42:38 +0000 2009

Garage sale status: $44 profit. Deemed moderate success with still a few hours left to sell.

Sat Jun 13 14:10:54 +0000 2009

Garage sale status: full success. $95 profit. Lots of crap gone. Still time to clear even more crap.

We're doing the Vegas thing to save money/headaches, but it seems like no matter what, there's stress with weddings.

Headache from the free beer from the volunteering from the thingiemajigger. Tomorrow is a bright and early 4 mile run. It will suck.

Wrote my first article for @tuaw. Fully expecting tons of hateful comments when it gets posted.

Mon Jun 15 04:18:23 +0000 2009

Today will be a day where I don't get out of my pajamas, and it will be awesome.

Mon Jun 15 13:49:00 +0000 2009

My first TUAW article seems to have struck a nerve.

Mon Jun 15 17:34:36 +0000 2009

I got a call asking if I wanted to teach web design classes for a local college. This is odd since I barely have a degree myself.

Mon Jun 15 20:42:37 +0000 2009

I'm breaking the cardinal web design sin by designing with tables. But I'm on a crazy strict deadline, and this is the only way I'll hit it.

Believe me, I know and I agree. But it's laying out a huge form and they need it ASAP. No time to fiddle with labels and CSS.

Made the fiancee watch A Simple Plan. I'm not sure she liked it as much as I do. Too many "change the channel" moments as she puts it.

Crappy PC that was hooked up to the plasma as a ghetto HTPC just died for good, I think. AppleTV may be migrating back to the basement.

I usually include B-rated horror movies as part of my therapeutic plans, but they're not for everyone.

iPhone 3.0, here I come! I know I'm a few minutes late to the game, but I can't wait to copy and paste. #iphone

Wed Jun 17 18:28:26 +0000 2009

My poor iPhone doesn't seem like it took to the 3.0 update. Did it kill my poor 1st gen?

Congratulations, iPhone 3G owners. You win.

Wed Jun 17 20:43:38 +0000 2009

I just got the hiccups. Life will suck until they go away.

Thu Jun 18 02:21:38 +0000 2009

It was going to be a productive day, but the power is out. Thank God for my iPhone or I'd be totally cut off from civilization.

Thu Jun 18 15:10:45 +0000 2009

Power is back on! I can go back to work! Wait, why is that a good thing?

Thu Jun 18 15:33:07 +0000 2009

It only took 4 hours and 3 trips to Best Buy, but I finally have wireless internet restored in the house. Now to see how much data I lost.

What a crappy day so far. Yesterday was Hillary's grumpy day. Today is mine.

Thu Jun 18 21:00:48 +0000 2009

I am already totally in love with my iPhone 3G S. My original iPhone looks and acts like a dog now.

Trying to go to sleep when you're not tired us no fun. Also no fun: setting an alarm for 5:30 am.

Sat Jun 20 03:57:38 +0000 2009

Woke up at 5:30 to run 4 miles in the blazing heat. My time was okay at best. I didn't get free beer at the end. This has been a blah tweet.

When you run slow the beer line is huge, and we had to get going semi-early for breakfast with the fam. Somehow I survived.
